The best way to teach city employees customer service is to furlough half of them. Those left will learn to be polite so they save their jobs. There’s far to many city workers. They’re mean because they’re worried about justifying and likely losing their jobs. Definitely replace everyone in code enforcement but help them find jobs as rodeo clowns.

Back in the early parts of the 2000s (2002 or 2003), Brookings lacked any serious codes or code enforcement when it came to animals, which resulted in one fine resident keeping a bear in his backyard. Need I say, soon Brookingonians discovered a greater need for code enforcement…

(“But I heard they have bears running wild in Sioux Falls…”)
